Last month I had the distinct pleasure of travelling with some old and new friends in the industry to my favorite city- Paris for a photo shoot. It was truly a dream come true for me!

Shooting took place over the course of two days. The first day I styled a photography seminar that was being put on by the talented Robert and Kathleen Trenske for a group of international wedding photographers. The shoots were coordinated by my friend, the ever creative Candice Dowling of Jubilee Events and a local wedding planner (and my new friend) , Kim Petyt of Parisian Events.

The second day of shooting Rob, Kathleen, Candice and I, along with our make up artist Masafumi and our model Segolene, took to the streets of Paris for a shoot inspired by the movie Amalie. We had an amazing time shooting in a quintessential Parisian cafe, in the metro and with a vintage car in the hills of Montmarte!

Below are some behind the scenes highlights of day 1 of shooting. We can't wait to share the 'finished product' with you!
